The Power of Spinach
Its tax season and very stressful time of year for a lot of us. Many people turn to food to deal with stress (some avoid it entirely!), which can be unhealthy if you're picking highly processed or sugary foods. But if you turn to foods like basil and spinach you may find that they actually help to relieve some of the stress you are feeling. Spinach and basil are known to relieve muscle tension, calm down the nerves, and help with fatigue. This is because of their magnesium content, which also regulates heart rhythm, blood pressure, and key in maintaining a healthy immune system. You can eat up to a cup of basil and spinach – cooked or fresh – each day. Magnesium also plays a part in hundreds more biochemical reactions that occur throughout the whole body.

We can't forget about the teeth! Spinach is a good source of Vitamin K, which functions in retaining calcium in the bone matrix, thereby leading to bone mineralization. Apart from this, other minerals in spinach like manganese, copper, magnesium, zinc and phosphorus also help in building up of strong bones. This in turn can prevent an individual from developing osteoporosis. These minerals are also essential for maintaining healthy teeth and the bone that supports them.

So when you pull out your checkbook to sign your hard-earned dough away to Uncle Sam, have yourself a spinach salad with some strawberries like this one: http://flavormosaic.com/spinach-strawberry-champagne-salad/. There! You'll start to feel better in no time! :)
